Warhammer 40K, Space Marines and that Blizzard game

One of the things that came out of Gamescom this year was someone from the THQ brass saying that Space Marines in Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millenium Online would be some form of unlockable hero class. That always confused me, since Vigil Games made it quite clear to me that Space Marine was the first class they had decided to reveal. Sadly, we had to prioritize when it came to what material we would start to edit – we came home with 50-60 interviews done – and while I placed Dark Millennium Online high up on that list, it would still take until today to finally see it online.

We also deal with the “Dark Millennium Online is a lot like WoW!”-comments that popped up a while back, with a bit of insight into how the game is going to be played. A shooter MMO with iconic Warhammer 40K classes and vehicles sounds great to me and I can’t wait to hear more. Still waiting for that set date!

A big thanks to David Adams for talking to us and for taking all my questions and silliness in good stride and with a smile.

  1. Nice interview. The more I read about the Warhammer 40K IP the more I’m looking forward to it. It could be a really fun sci-fi MMO that’s unique enough to break away from the WoW clone mould. Fingers crossed it’s good :)

    Good interview, Petter. I liked what David had to say quite a bit. I think THQ would be well served to keep their executives out of the press and leave the PR up to the game’s producers and designers.
